Student or Learner
Hello, can anyone correct/confirm the accuracy of this?
How to refer to two doctors with the same surname (ie: Smith):
If they are biologically related:
Immediate family (ie: father and daughter): Doctor and Doctor Smith
Siblings: Doctors Smith
*Would cousins be: Doctor and Doctor Smith or Doctor Smith and Doctor Smith?
Just two people: Doctor Smith and Doctor Smith
Married: Doctor and Doctor Smith
*Assume for this question's sake that you cannot refer to them by their first names please!

I find it rather tiresome when native speakers ask this sort of 'How many angels can dance on a pinhead?' question with the sole intention of making life difficult for language learners.
